To do this, we have created a mentorship program that is designed to match you with a 3rd or 4th-year student who has similar priorities and availability as you.

We have a panel of students who want to answer all of your questions and share some survival tips they wish they knew in their first year!
We also put a priority on giving back to our school and our community.
